National Adoption Month 2012

Every November is National Adoption Month. Every year has its own theme, decided upon by the Child Welfare Information Gateway, and it's funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This year's theme is "National Adoption Month--Virtually: Adoption in the Digital Age." While efforts each November always focus around educating, informing, and recruiting the public for foster care and for permanent adoptive homes, this is the first year that the focus has been on a new, modern method of connecting with communities across the country.

This short video explains how the 2012 National Adoption Month initiative helps connect agencies with resources they need to recruit and retain families, provide families with information to help them start the adoption process, and link youth to resources on staying connected with the important people in their lives.

Visit the National Adoption Month 2012 website for more information on how to get involved as a professional, a parent, or a youth.
